After months of steady progress, the R11 million construction of the new Build it hardware store at Bothasig Mall, which started in mid-2014, has been completed.

Spanning just over 1000m², with an additional 1000m2 yard area, the new Build it store opened on Thursday, 9 April 2015 and is conveniently located on the left side of the shopping centre, next to the KFC drive-thru.

Build it is part of the SPAR Group and specialises in building materials and related hardware to provide a full home building solution from foundation to finish. Build it Bothasig boasts a complete range of anything you might need for your own home improvement or construction project: paint, plumbing, electrical and gardening it’s all easily accessible and under one roof.

John de Smidt, the owner of the former Pick ‘n Fix hardware store at Bothasig Mall, is now the General Manager of the Build it store and he and his competent team are ready to welcome customers into this newest addition to Build it group of independent retailers.

The Build it Bothasig construction project has been accompanied by several other improvements to the shopping centre, including the relocation and upgrading of various tenants such as the Bothasig Pharmacy, long standing resident Spice for Life, and the Barksole Bothasig late last year.
